What is the salary of artificial intelligence and machine learning engineer in
Artificial Intelligence Engineer salary for freshers in India starts at around
Rs. 6 LPA and can stretch up to Rs. 12 LPA, with higher-end salaries
usually offered by reputed companies like Amazon, Flipkart, Google,
Facebook, etc. As for Machine Learning roles, the starting salary for
freshers is generally Rs. 8 LPA, and it can go up to Rs. 10-15 LPA,
depending upon the job role, skill set, and educational background.
Candidates who have strong foundational knowledge in Data Science and a
few years of work experience can earn as high as Rs. 17 LPA.
Why are Artificial Intelligence technologies the talking point in the world
In ancient times, devices such as desk computers were not capable of
doing high-level computations which were required to run machine
learning applications. However, now, along with the availability of
machines, these algorithms are capable of doing high-level computations
and automate various processes. Furthermore, current algorithms such as
Chatbots are intelligent enough to handle communication with clients,
perform critical tasks, banking transactions, etc.
What role AI will play in empowering industries?
In recent times, with the advent of technologies such as Industry 4.0,
Healthcare 4.0, smart cities, smart buildings, etc, AI has a major role to play
in changing the functioning of current industries. However, decision
making roles will still be handled by humans with the help of AI tools.
How B.Tech in CS and AI/ML are linked or different from each other?
Artificial Intelligence is a part of Computer Science. Also AI is a subset of
Computer Science. The theories and practices of computer science are
always used for developing Artificial Intelligence Systems.
The key differences between Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence
1) CS is generic and wide concept whereas AI is an implementation.
2) AI is one of many fields in Computer Science.
3) AI is discipline belonging to CS.
Both CS and AI have scopes in market today. But AI is the future and it
would have more scope in coming days.
If we talk about software engineering, the sub-problem solutions are
correct, however, it is not the same in machine learning — you find errors
and the aggregate results can be dismay.
Machine learning needs you to have a solid foundation in mathematics and
statistics. However, software engineering is usually the default route most
people often fall victim of. But the degree definitely prepares you for the
bigger picture. Also, being a software engineer does not prevent you from
becoming a machine learning engineer. Machine learning engineers think
on these lines —space of models, deployment, and the impact.
In a nutshell, the world needs software engineers as much as they need
machine learning engineers. Both the job roles need to work symbiotically
with each other.
How would you explain machine learning to a software engineer?
Software engineering is about developing programs or tools to automate
tasks. Machine learning is all about automating automation! Machine
learning is about finding the optimal instructions to automate a task.
Machine learning algorithms are instructions for computers to learn other
instructions automatically from data or experience. Therefore, machine
learning is the automation of automation.
Why is AI a hot topic today?
A lot of things have aligned to make this an exciting time for major
advancements in AI.
Processing power has improved at an amazing rate — there’s been a trillion-
fold increase in performance over the last 60 years.
• The cost of data processing has become more affordable.
• There’s more data that needs to be analyzed because businesses are
capturing more signals from customer interactions.
I have heard about AI. What is it exactly?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the concept of having machines “think like
humans” — in other words, performing tasks like reasoning, planning,
learning, and understanding language. While no one is expecting parity
with human intelligence today or in the near future, AI has a big application
in our day to day lives. The brain behind artificial intelligence is a
technology called machine learning, which is designed to make our jobs
easier and more productive.
